16 year old Cooper broke his neck and damaged his spinal cord. The paralysis is sadly permanent, please help Cooper.
On Tuesday my friends beautiful son, Cooper broke his neck and damaged his spinal cord. The paralysis is permanent from the neck down. Vertebrae c3 c4 and c5 affected. He is on life support and it is critical. Please help him.
Cooper is from Tauranga and had just moved to Whanganui a week ago, and he is now in Christchurch Intensive Care Unit. This is an incredibly tough time for Kim, Dad Roger and siblings Geordie, Kelly and Abby. At this early stage it is uncertain to say exactly what the outcome will be, but it will involve months spent in the Burwood Spinal unit. Hopefully his usual exuberance and zest for life will help him on this long journey ahead.
